Our expert says:
A random glucose blood test of 6.4, is a little high and I suggest that you consult your doctor for a glucose tolerance test, which will give much more information, in order to exclude a light form of diabetes. Your doctor can also do a serum insullin level. If this is raised, you can be classified as a pre-diabetic. Do not be too concerned and adapt to a diet with a low sugar content and low GI count. The extra tests that can be done by a doctor, is more accurate, than a random, single glucose test.
